Advertising Is Dead


Published on

Presentation given at the Inspire 2009 conference in Bucharest. Originally intended to be titled ´What if there was no TV´, during the preparation we noticed several trends that led us to change the title to Ádvertising is Dead´. Every new technology has a shorter curve from introduction to irritation. It´s time for a new approach, which we call the Attraction Model.

We are available to present at your conference or event too.
